edited August 2008 in Ask the Experts
I inherited this beautiful gun recently (looks to be fired sparingly.) One side has Colt Automatic Long Rifle CAL.22 and the other has 202500-S. Barrel is approximetly 6 inches. Can anyone tell me its age and worth. I can't stop looking at it. Looks brand new! Thanks in advance.

    Mag release is on the bottom of the grip and it appears that only the rear sight is adjustable.

    Your Match Target's serial # dates it to 1963. It's a 3rd generation in the same serial range as the "Target" (6 in.) and "Sport" (4 in.). You can find out much more info. on your Woodsman if you go to Bob Rayburn's excellent site colt.22.com. Best way to determine value is to look up comparable models right here on Gunbroker, both for sale and what others have brought in the past. Good luck- Asa

    If your pistol also has the original box or manual, treat them well. They too are worth a fair price if in good condition. Yes, the Woodsman is a beautiful gun. Take care of it but don't be afraid to shoot it either.

    If it's in mint or near mint condition it's worth in the $1000 +/- range. If the box and paperwork are present add another 200-300. I have a LN 6" match target W/box made in 1968

    Thanks for all the replies! Though I'm keeping the gun, I wish I had the box and manual. I'm taking it to the range Saturday to break it in. It doesn't appear to have been shot at all. <100 rounds.

    sight adjustment is funky. make sure you bring some small screwdrivers.
